Full description
Explore the Dharavi Slum, the largest slum located in a megacity in Asia. The slum is now famous thanks to the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire". The tour will open your eyes to this bustling area of small businesses and a thriving community. Start the journey by meeting your guide at Dharavi, and experiencing the everyday happenings of this unique area. Numerous small businesses are thriving in every corner, making anything from exotic soaps and handmade cosmetics, to pottery and textiles. Throughout the walking tour, benefit from being a small group. Stroll easily through the narrow alleys and see how locals live their life here. You'll have a chance to interact with many people in the community. You'll also learn how the local recycling industry works.  You'll also be amazed at how diverse Dharavi is, with many different traditions and beliefs gathered in the same place. Your 2-hour tour will end at a pottery factory, where you can ask the guide to get you a taxi. You can also add on a vegetarian meal in a local family's home if you would like to stay in the slum a bit longer.

Ganesh was a fantastic guide who really knows his stuff about the area - he told us about the different industries working in the slums, what life is like for the people and he always made sure that his guests were safe when crossing roads. I am a solo, female traveler and I felt completely safe on this tour. However, FYI that the Cafe Coffee Day that the tour company tells you to meet at is closed (permanently by the looks of it), so don’t expect to be able to wait inside for the guide to arrive. A suggestion for the tour operator is to meet at a different cafe or something that is open to make guests feel safer while waiting.
